Gray Pleasure

 Lone mourning dove feasts

 beneath foggy blanket – coos

with satisfaction.


Carried Away

All in a flurry –

wind and leaves and birds and folks –

this Thanksgiving Day.



Frost covered leaves on

ground and trees – an icy shift

to a new season.


Cold Fare

Unimpressed by frost’s

cold kiss, deer gather for their

misty, morning meal.
